Dance & Story to Combine in TIMPANOGOS STORYTELLING at Ring Around the Rose
Local performer Wendy Gourley will represent Timpanogos Storytelling on the Ring Around the Rose stage on May 13, 2017. As always, the show will be interactive and "wiggle-friendly" for audiences ages 2-102. Wendy will combine forces with local dancer Hilary Wolfley to take the audience on a wild ride of imagination.
Wendy & Hilary will present Story Dance - a show that is alive with interactive, musical storytelling. They invite audiences to join in the dance as they celebrate movement, joy, and cooperation!
